Happy Love Day. But forget the red and pink. It's time for a new challenge over at Simply Create Too. This time Challenge #55 is about St. Patrick's Day/Use Green. I've not a lot of use for St. Patty's cards so I went green. And yes, I like Kermit.
My background is a piece of tracing paper that I used to sop up excess spray ink when I was having some fun with stencils. I have a large piece of backing from contact paper that I keep on the bottom of the cardboard box I use when spraying. It catches the excess but because it's plastic-y it doesn't absorb and I can sop the ink up with scrap paper. This time I misted the ink with water first to dilute it, then soaked it up. Amazing results - although you never know for sure what you will get with this technique.
After adhering it to a blue cardbase, I applied clear modelling paste through the Crafters Workshop Rain stencil and added a tiny bit of gold glitter to it before it dried. Subtle, but effective. Computer generated a sentiment to fit the mood of the card.
I'm joining the talented ladies at CASology this week where the cue is BOLD. Yep.
Feeling green? Simply create too!
